2 red lights start flashing


Two red lights flashing on the Xbox 360 means that the system is encountering overheating issues. What you can do is to let your console cooldown for about half an hour and you are ready to go. Also, if you are connected to a Hi-definition output and running on 1080p, you might want to downscale it to 720p as the console generates less heat in lower resolution. Hope this helps..

Two red lights left side flashing on the xbox consol do you what what the solution is?


hello,

Two red lights lighting up means that your 360 is overheating... try to move your 360 to a cooler spot. you can also try to vent the heat by pointing a desk fan directly to the console.

I hope this helps.

2 red lights fans don;t work


Hey Marsh2Man,


It's not your fans that's causing the problem. It's the XBOX itself. The Xboxes generally overheat and this has been a big problem for Microsoft. Alot of companies are actually reflowing these system, reheating the solder under the chips allowing them to connect back down to the points on the board.


You will need your system reflowed. Contact a repair shop.

What does 2 flashing lights mean on an xbox 360?


The two red flashing lights on the left side of the circle indicate the thermal limit has been reached. (over-heating) Check to see if the fan on the back of the unit is blowing air. There are external fans that can be added to keep the GPU. (Graphics Processing Unit) and CPU (Central Processing Unit) temp down. Keeping the temp down can prevent the dreaded RRD. (Red Ring of Death) Here is link as an example of a cooling fan. http://www.gamerepairparts.com/xbox-360-cooling-.html
Shop around and find one that you like. Remember, when it comes to these computer chips, cooler is safer.

360 issues


Two Red Lights

The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the internal temperature of the console exceeds the acceptable limits. You may think of this as too hot, overheating, and so on. Make sure the fans are operating and the system has adequate ventilation.

Since you've been inside it's possible that a heatsink or some other part of the cooling system is not working properly or is loose. Check all these!

Good Luck!
